Testing gas heaters in Canberra?

By Dazzlar - 17 June 2013 1

Now that Winter is upon us our gas heaters are in full use.  I recently read an article about the death of two little boys due to Carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxide poisoning and I was wondering who do I get to test my heaters?

They are the old wall heaters and are original to the home, making them about 30 years old.  I have been told that they were banned in A.C.T. schools but don’t know if that is true or not.

I have had one of them repaired recently but the repairer advised that he wasn’t able to test them.  Any ideas?

What’s Your opinion?

We had our gas heater serviced by Climatemaster ( two years ago. The service guy tested the CO levels and found them to be moderately high. We were recommended to upgrade the system (which we did). I am not sure if it was warranted, however we were wanting a more efficient system anyway. I guess as you have just had the heater repaired you do not want to get a service done – it is crazy that the person that repaired your unit could not test for it. Perhaps Climatemaster could arrange to have someone come over as a nominal fee?
